Your Indian readers possibly don't know Penn and Teller.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penn_%26_Teller . They are highly-popular American stage magicians who have made their reputation out of debunking illusions. One of their early television shows explained how various stage magic tricks are performed. Their current show is called 'Penn and Teller's Bullshit.'
At the start of this month, 'Bullshit' featured 'Multilevel Marketing.' Our good friend, Robert FitzPatrick was invited to participate.
In the show, entitled 'Easy Money,' Penn and Teller revealed (in their inimitable comic-style, complete with four letter words), that all-manner of over-priced wampum is currently being used in the USA to entice the gullible into essentially the same illegal money circulation scheme based on the 'Amway' original. You can take your choice of almost any (effectively unsaleable) products and services, from macho 'Man-Cave' toys and fruit drinks, to sex toys. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgcZyhfU0FA
Penn and Teller are multi-millionaire international celebrities who are apparently scared of no one and who work for a very wealthy Television channel, 'Showtime,' but look at their reaction when they were asked if 'Bullshit' would be covering 'Scientology?' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRYsjMrHnvQ
